Destination

Kanzelbahn Mountain Station

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the mountain station of the Kanzelbahn, follow either the paved road or the parallel forest and meadow path to the Kanzelhöhe where you join the Kanzelhöhenpromenade (path no. 176). After a few minutes' walk, you reach the old mountain station of the Kanzelbahn on the right-hand side. The paved road leads to a lovely gravel path, along which information about the regional flora and fauna is given. A few minutes' walk after the last information board you reach the highest point of the circuit with the Waldtratte. You cross the slope here and reach a large car park. From here it goes over the paved road again through a short tunnel (caution!) downhill to a left turn. Here you turn sharp left in the direction of the reservoir (path no. 31) and reach the starting point again at the mountain station of the Kanzelbahn.
